Context
As an project manager you will need funding to complete your project/venture. A corporate decision
has been made that all funding is internal. You may, however, argue that alternate sources may be
appropriate (i.e. banks, angel investors, micro-finance organisations, crowd funding, etc.).
You will need to present your ideas in a succinct, coherent and persuasive report, to assess the viability
of your project.

INTRODUCTION
The new project which the company is planning to set up is that of starting an executive hotel. Executive hotels are hotels that are used for business purposes. The hotel's rooms and the entire structure is designed in such a way that it can be used by large business executives for different purposes. The rooms in the hotels will be spacious and with separate bed a
angements so that meetings or other activities of the business can be ca
ied out.
The company already has a hotel business running which is badly affected due to the pandemic situation that has come up. The revenues and profits have reduced drastically for the past four-five months. To survive and meet its operating and running cost, the company needs to invest in an alternative source of generating revenue.Setting up an executive hotel would be beneficial. These kinds of hotelswill help in generating revenues as large companies and industries have started their operatives. There will be various meetings and other business activities which will require the top managers or the executives to take rooms and organize the same.
The executive hotels can help in earning revenues as the business all over the world have started operations and slowly the demand for executive hotels will increase. It will be required for various business purposes like meetings, gatherings, seminars, business travelers, etc. The management and top executives of large multinational companies and others will require it for purposes as mentioned (Richard, B. and Cleveland, S., 2016). These kinds of hotels will involve extra perks from an ordinary hotel like extra services at the room, free snacks, or private gathering space to work and socialize. In these difficult times, when the traveling and tourism business has declined, the plan for the development of an executive hotel can be useful. It would be hep to generate revenues and increase the profitability of the business to some extent. The operating costs of the company would be met. Since the hotel that we are running already has earned a huge name and the hotel is known for its management, leadership, and its desire to provide the best quality services to its customers, it would be beneficial to utilize the skills in the same line of business. Fewer efforts in marketing and setting up the business would be required.
PLAN FOR SETTING UP A HOTEL BUSINESS
The steps involved in setting up an executive hotel and making a financial analysis would be as follows (Kapur, A. and Sen, K., 2012):
1) Making an initial plan of action
2) Area, Demographic and Neighborhood analysis
3) Site reviews
4) The development and Recommendations Cost
5) Market analysis
6) Financial Analysis
7) Feasibility Analysis
8) Comparison of the value created to the projected costs
We have to look into the above-stated factors before starting up anexecutive hotel. The details of each of the topics mentioned for ca
ying out a financial analysis and understanding of the feasibility and viability of setting up a project.
1) Making a plan of action: This is a first step in starting a project or a new business idea.Planning refers to determining the steps and procedures to be followed that will lead to the success of a new project. The course of action that will be followed is decided in this step. The management of our hotel will conduct meetings on how to move forward in this project. It will decide the steps to be followed in a sequence that will act as a guide and provide direction for achieving the objectives and the goals set for the project of setting up an executive hotel.
2) Analyzing the area, demographics, and the neighborhood for setting up the business: It refers to the local su
oundings that will have an impact on the hotel business. The main areas that will be included are the social, governmental, and environmental factors that will affect the valuation of the hotel property. Since the management already has a piece of land for setting a hotel situated in the area where there are several offices, setting up an executive hotel there would be highly beneficial. There are a lot of large Multi-national Companies and other offices which will require the hotels for its business purposes. Also, the land is situated in such a place that it has connectivity through air, road, or railways. Hence, it would be beneficial for business travelers and others for conducting various meetings and seminars.
3) Reviewing the site: It is one of the important steps while developing a plan for setting up a new executive hotel. It will analyze and evaluate the land that is available with us, the size of the hotel, the number of floors it will have, access and visibility, whether the utilities and other site-related attributes are available or not. This is important to decide in advance as the success of the business will depend on all the factors as stated. Since the executive hotel that we are planning to set-up is located in an area that has good connectivity to all the highways, airports, railways and is su
ounded by MNC's, it would be feasible to develop a hotel with three floors. Each floor shall have dedicated executive spacious rooms designed keeping in mind its purpose. Also, the various governmental and environmental impacts of the project shall be considered while considering the site. The management will need to analyze the taxes that it has to pay along with the other legal formalities it needs to fulfill.
